Happy Sunday everyone! It’s been a busy week for me but the exciting news is my new blog design is up and running! Many thanks to Sam at Temptation Designs for the absolutely beautiful job she did! There are a few things to iron out but nothing major. If you do notice anything though, please let me know. I apologize for the reposting of my posts in google reader. When it recognized the blog had been moved it reposted a bunch of posts through the reader. As you can see I posted a few giveaways yesterday – I didn’t want to post as we were moving the blog so they all got done yesterday. Be sure to check them out if you missed the posts yesterday – there was Primacy by J.E. Fishman, The Sixes by Kate White, and Falling Together by Marisa de los Santos which I’m dying to read!
One big change is that giveaways are now listed on a separate page. The hope is to keep the blog cleaner looking and much less cluttered. Plus it just makes things easier to find. When you click on the blog you’ll see in the left corner there is a link to get to the current giveaways. I have a few other things I’ll do along the way but this is it – I won’t be changing my blog anymore. This one is here to stay and I love it so I hope you all will too!
Well I don’t know about where you live but summer is on its way out here. We went, in a matter of a day, from really hot temperatures for our area to really cold. It was a hard blow to take. Now they’re saying it’s going to get hot again so who knows. All I know is it isn’t going to be long before I’ll be complaining about all the snow again. lol. I have to say though I’m anxious to see how Sam reacts to the snow this year. I do have a few pictures of the last of our flowers to share though – the sweetpeas did good this year and other than the marigolds have really lasted, not to mention they smell great!
On the reading front I haven’t been doing the best. I haven’t been doing the best on visiting all your blogs either and I apologize. Things still aren’t going the best for me but I’ll work through it and get back to the business of visiting you all. Right now I’m finishing up Megan’s Way by Melissa Foster for a book review on Tuesday and if it keeps going like it has been then I’m really liking it. Truthfully I have quite a few books started but haven’t been getting them finished. This week on the blog is a busy one – here’s the lineup:
Monday – Guest Post/Giveaway with Liza Gyllenhaal, author of So Near
Tuesday – Review of Megan’s Way by Melissa Foster
Wednesday – Guest Post/Giveaway with Melissa Foster, author of Megan’s Way
Thursday – Review of Call Me Irresistible by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (loved this book!)
Friday – Review of The Legacy by Katherine Webb
Wow, I’m tired just reading that. It sure is a lot of reading for someone who doesn’t feel much like reading. Not to mention I have Home to Woefield by Susan Juby to read for my book club. I guess I had really better get busy!
Let’s see now what has Sammy been up to – well really not a lot. He’s still a bundle of energy and when you don’t feel well he is impossible to keep up to. He goes and goes – just like that energizer bunny on tv. My biggest issue with him right now is listening. He listens when he wants to and the rest of the time you can forget it. He’s especially bad on walks – he’s really bad when he’s got his nose to the grindstone and sniffing. It almost takes a semi truck to move him. Also, his newest thing is growling (and not very nicely) at people to get attention. Those of you with dogs – have you ever gone through this? What did you do? I never had these issues with Buddy. When I wanted him to come I just had to gently tug his leash. I guess Sam may get better as he gets older. I sure hope so anyway. Otherwise he really is the sweetest dog; always ready with the kisses and cuddles. I can’t believe how much I love him especially as I wasn’t sure I could love another pet after Buddy but as time goes on you find that you sure can! I’ve got a few pictures of Sam to share with today…
I had to share this picture. This is what Sam does each and every time I take out the camera. He hears it turn on and off he goes. I could get so many adorable pictures if he would just stay put!
Ha, ha, ha – I have another of mommy’s socks in my mug. I really drive her crazy stealing all of her socks but hey, they are my favorite toy. Besides who could really resist this sweet and adorable face I have? Of course, nobody!
In case you were wondering this is how I get mommy’s socks. When she’s not paying attention I get one end in my teeth really good and I pull with all my might. Then I make sure to go bury the sock in my piles of toys in case she gets the idea that she can put them back on. Hee, hee, hee.
Well that’s it for this week. I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. What’s everyone up to and what are you reading – anything so good that you can’t put it down? Have a great week everyone!
